What is an expansion vessel?
Expansion vessels accommodate fluctuations in the water pressure inside a plumbing system. Older vessels simply allow water to rise into an overflow tank and return by gravity, however, sealed systems are more hygienic and energy-efficient. Modern vessels are divided by a flexible internal diaphragm that keeps the air and water separate.
What pressure should my expansion vessel be?
In typical domestic systems, the pressure inside expansion vessels is factory pre-set to about 12psi (0.82 bar). However, it varies between makes and can be adjusted for taller buildings, higher system pressures or altitude. Some are as high as 20psi (1.38 bar). If you can’t find the specifications on the vessel, contact the manufacturer.
